Buy some more blank DVD's and go down the DVD route, you will get better quality providing the AVI is of good quality in the first place. Also not all DVD players can play VCD or SVCD so make sure yours can if you go that way.

If your using Nero Vision to burn the DVD you can burn it to an Image File first (onto your HDD), then mount it and play it from your HDD to make sure it works properly.

If your happy with it then you can use Nero to burn to DVD and even do a test burn first.

visit vcdhelp.com and under the tools section there'll be loads of programs that can do various types of conversions
also guides there to help you too

back when I bothered with VCDs.. I used TMPGEnc then burnt the resulting mpg file with nero

Does Burnaware support AVI ?? if it does, you dont need anything else

Just add the files, it'll burn it to DVD format

If it doesnt support AVI then you'll need a separate program.

This maybe better (http://www.cdburnerxp.se/home)

Dont know if it supports AVI tho
